Life in today’s world? Cue the hamster wheel analogy! We just keep going and going. Hectic lifestyles have us running on overdrive, constantly spinning our wheels. Phones, TVs, internet, transportation, children, careers, relationships, oh my! Technology provides access to unlimited options for stimulation, all beckoning for our time and attention.
Toppling the Tower
In the swirl of rushing through the days, you may begin to cut corners, especially in the areas of sleep, nutrition and exercise. Poor lifestyle choices will ultimately settle in and become poor habits—a new normal. You might rarely have time to take a breath, let alone notice the subtle signs of distress and damage being caused by physical, emotional and chemical overload. But in time, these burdens add up, causing imbalance in the system and ultimately pain, discomfort, injuries and chronic dis-ease.
Imagine a marble run. If one piece is bumped out of place, the marble gets stuck, or falls off the track all together. Keeping our bones and joints aligned is a crucial way to help insure the nervous system runs smoothly. Messages will efficiently get where they’re trying to go, allowing our body and mind to function in synchronicity. We not only move better, we feel better, heal better, think better and make better choices. Regular chiropractic adjustments are a great tool for resetting your system. Chiropractic philosophy is centered on promoting good health through relieving nervous system irritation. Nerve stress is removed through non-invasive, gentle manipulations called “adjustments.” Adjustments not only restore proper spinal and nervous system function, but they also promote the body’s natural healing process.
Chiropractic Care is for Every…Body!
In fact, we recommend a baby’s first adjustment be as soon as possible after birth, and a regular part of a healthy lifestyle through the years. Although the type of stressors may change as we grow and age—from birthing trauma, to school-age bumps and falls, to compounding immune burdens, poor nutrition, lack of sleep and the stress of adult living—good alignment will help address the ebb and flow of imbalances.
Chiropractic is very effective in relieving conditions such as:
Low back pain
Knee, ankle or foot problems
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Pre- and post-natal discomfort
Sinus issues, allergies and coughs
Reflux, colic, bedwetting and ear infections
and many other conditions!
While understanding the benefits of chiropractic care is important, frequency and consistency of care is the KEY to successful results. Education is the foundation of my practice. Knowledge empowers my patients to take responsibility for their health, nurturing a commitment and responsibility that will last a lifetime!
Integrative Health for Successful Outcomes
There is nothing more powerful than a chiropractic adjustment for aligning the body. However, in addition to adjustments, complimentary modalities such as acupuncture, therapeutic massage, whole-body cryotherapy, deep tissue laser, non-surgical spinal decompression and functional nutrition can help speed the healing process and promote optimal well-being on an on-going basis.
My patient, Gregory, is a fantastic example of the benefit of combining multiple natural resources. He was experiencing degenerative disc disease and after 10 operations, he was still having pain and leg weakness. He recalls: “After running out of traditional medicine options, I sought alternative medical treatment including chiropractic, acupuncture and whole-body cryotherapy. I had incredible results! Leg weakness improved immediately, pain levels began to drop. Chronic low back inflammation responded well to acupuncture. I’m now able to walk over two miles, feeling like I can have a life again!”
